An opportunity to achieve intellectual and personal growth for 90 talented rising juniors throughout the state will be presented in the 33rd annual Summer High School Institute (HSI) June 10-30 at the University of Wyoming.
The students were selected from high schools across Wyoming. UW offers them an opportunity to achieve intellectual and personal growth, cultivate their leadership capabilities and measure their capacities and interests.
UW faculty members will conduct problem-centered classes ranging from philosophy to DNA to robotics and agriculture.
The three-week experience also will include athletic activities, talent shows, picnics, dances, an HSI 5K Color Run, random acts of kindness, guest speakers, attendance at local concerts and plays, visits to museums and enrichment excursions.
High school administrators, counselors and teachers guided students through the application process. Selections were based on an application letter, an essay, two letters of recommendation, academic performance and extracurricular activity involvement.
Begun in 1985, the HSI program is sponsored by UW, with special funding from the Wyoming State Legislature.
